Deserts and Beyond

Deserts and beyond...places in and around the southern California deserts and beyond. Photo taken at Canyon Lake, in the Superstition Mountains of Arizona, December 2011. A few minutes later, after the sun disappeared, these cliffs were their normal color. They were only golden for a short time and I'm glad we were able to view them in their glory.

Yucca blossoms~Nature Notes 041510











Along with the joshua trees at Joshua Tree National Park, the yuccas have started to bloom. We found these along the road past the Cottonwood Springs entrance. Just LOOK at all those blossoms! And, look at the green spikes! Ouch! We so thoroughly enjoyed our day at Joshua Tree that I can't wait to return! Nature Notes for April 15, 2010.

We went to Joshua Tree years ago and it was really beautiful in a way unfamiliar to us. I love it when things start to bloom!

Those are beautiful. Somebody at one time planted yucca across the pond that only have one bloom every year. Nothing like this bounty.. Thank you for adding this post to Nature Notes!
